Summer Cocktail: Frosé


I am obsessed with drinking rosé this summer and was so excited when I stumbled across this delicious recipe from Warwick Wine Estate. A frosé (frozen + rosé) is an adult wine-based slush puppy - and it's delicious, refreshing and easy to make. A good rosé can be hard to find, but I find Warwick's 'The First Lady'\ quite refreshing. It is dry, which helps balance out this sweet recipe.

And it's so easy to make...

Ingredients:

1 x bottle of rosé (you can use Warwick's The First Lady or any other dry rosé)
1 x cup of water
1 x cup of granulated sugar
Mint and Strawberries

Method:

  1. Bring the water and sugar to boil in a small sauce pan. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  2. Pour the rose and your sugar mixture into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer.
  3. Stir with a fork every 30 mins, breaking up any chunks of ice. Do this for about 3 hours
  4. Serve garnished with strawberries and mint.

It's great for those of us celebrating summer over the festive season and will be my equivalent of egg nog. If you're counting calories, like I am, serve it for dessert and ditch the Christmas pudding.
